When Disney announced it would be launching its own service and also simultaneously cancelling its licensing agreements (in time) for other services to use its content, it led to a massive drop in the share value for Netflix. Although Netflix would bounce back, its led to a nervousness at the Netflix HQ over their biggest threat to its dominance.

Recently Netflix announced it would not be renewing its once popular series “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage”, two of the big hitting Marvel series that are owned by Disney.

Whilst the second series of both were not particularly received well its well considered that the decision was forced through by Netflix over the impending challenge from Disney and it reclaiming its rights to the characters in the future.
